The Experience

We have 1 opening for a “handy” person. Under the supervision of one of our managers, you will be doing some small carpentering work, painting walls and working outdoors, maintaining our compost, flower pots and herbal garden. We love this person to have a foundational knowledge of handy work. Our handy person will also be lighting the sauna, picking up our guests from the station and welcoming them with a warm smile!!!

This experience was beyond my expectations! I enjoyed every moment spent at the lodge. The location is an awesome place filled with positive energy, love and surrounded by nature. I met special people there. The work time is very flexiable and you don't feel it so you can have time for yourself and enjoy sharing time with the community. I felt from the first moments that I was in my second home. Thanks Rachel <3

The experience of workexchange in the lodge was a shift maker in my way of thinking of life. I learned so much about what are values that now make more sense to me and my life while I was really living in community with the people that were there with me making the Magic of shamballa happen. All the little and really deep conversations were amazing, all the sharings of competences and habilities of each one in your own way made me realize how life can be more meaningful when you are with your open heart to just be yourself and enjoy nature and simple things in life.
